Circus Films..
Matt Masters a Wild West circus star in the mold of Buffalo Bill Cody, bought a bankrupt circus in 1885 and successfully rebuilt it into a combination 3 ring and Wild West extravaganza, mixing Wild West Show acts with conventional circus acts in a winning combination.. His decision is prompted by his desire to find Lili Alfredo, who disappeared 14 years earlier following the daat of her husband, The Flying Alfredo...At Lisbon, the first port of call, the Circus Maximus capsizes at the pier and puts the show in the toilet.. Masters has to release most of his performers, board out his animals, and go back to performing an act for the Ed Purdy Wild West Show, a staple on the European circus circuit..His first new hire is Emile, a French animal trainer who has a spectacular act involving lions who lie down on him in the ring.. Masters offers to take him on if he will switch from lions to tigers..His second new act is Jojo the Clown and the Wire-Dancing Ballerina...Backstage, Masters discovers that Jojo is an old acquaintace - Aldo Alfredo, brother-in-law of his lost love Lili Alfredo..Despite his reservations at hiring a possible enemy Masters takes the act on and neither he nor Aldo admit to Toni, who is Aldo's niece, that they have met before; or that Jojo the Clown is her uncle..The TWO have an intense confrontation in a bar, ending with Masters slamming a full bottle of brandy..I could not speak..Yeah, my knees got weak..Last me all through the week..Oh, don' Ask why...
